They are a bit No Wave, minus the dissonance. Have a great show!

No Wave? Had to google that one. Seems to fit though. Also have seen Post Rock to describe them. Just trying to get out and see something different for me these days. Friend I am going with turned me on to them and he loves him some Clutch. What do you call this? Another band he digs. Me not so much.

yeah, EITS are definitely considered more post-rock than no wave. in fact, they pretty much epitomize a specific subsection of post-rock by playing long epic instrumentals that use emotive and contemplative sounding chord structures and rely heavily on dynamics and repetition. lots of other music has fallen under the loose genre boundaries of "post-rock" over the years, but these guys have become popular enough lately that they have sort of come to define the genre to some people.

and, while EITS-style post-rock bands play long, melodic songs to build an emotive and contemplative mood, No Wave bands generally play short, urgent songs that are taught, angular, dissonant, and noisy, to convey a sort of detached, nihilistic, anxious feel. there are similarities between EITS and some of the early bands associated with the original no wave scene (glen branca also played long, repetitive, guitar-driven instrumentals that had a similarly epic feel), but the use of the term "no wave" has changed a bit since it was coined and modern critics would probably not refer to EITS (or even branca, who was actually part of the original movement) as No Wave.

old school no wave...

Thanks for the info and links. Nice post. Also, I finally got around to listening to a previous recommendation you had made on a earlier post for TDIH. That 9-26-72> He's Gone. That is a sure enough treat. What a payoff for not skipping that one and hearing it all the way out. Love finding stuff like that here and thanks for pointing that one out. Peace

So I take it you are in Atlanta?

I may be heading to that show, if tickets are available at the door. I just can't bring myself to pay a stinking $11 fee on a $25 ticket!

Yea, I live in Decatur, the coupling of Berkeley and Mayberry its been called. Couple other guys on here in the Atlanta area if I recall as well. The fees are out of control I know, but what can you do? Used to wear a shirt that read across it "Ticketbastards" in the ticketmaster colors and font. Hardly anyone would get it, but other times I would get a "right on" from random folk in the lot and a nod and smile. Peace
